Developing a Career Information System: Final Report.
The report reviews three years of progress toward implementing the Career Information System (CIS), a statewide interagency consortium that provides current labor market and educational information in usable forms to students and clients and assists in the integration of such information into schools and social agencies in Oregon. The system's purpose is to improve career choices and training opportunities. CIS enhances the efforts of agencies and schools by synthesizing labor market and educational information; developing and managing delivery systems; and consulting on the use of career information in counseling and instructional programs. CIS operates as a cooperative, controlled and supported by the agencies it serves. Essentially, the report is an effort to aid others who may attempt such statewide efforts. The response of students and clients and the results of pilot tests indicate the system's effectiveness with diverse populations. The seven chapters discuss the research, the CIS system, information development in detail, the necessary features of a career information delivery system, analyzed through a review of the literature, several types of services, the impact on users, and financial considerations. Appended materials include: the constitution, user service agreement, standards, organizational sources, a library classification system, forms, and a glossary. (JB)
